Hanwha Eagles vs Lotte Giants 5/8/24 Pick: Over 9.5

We fully expect this game to be a back and forth battle and with how bad the pitching has been for both of these teams I am looking at the over hitting. The over is a strong favorite here with both starters having an ERA of 4.00, but also the team ERAs for both teams is over the 5 mark. With that being the case, we are looking for the over 9.5 to be what should be played in this game and have it cash in some bank for you.
